Presenting Blue Hour Press' 20th chapbook, Daniel Coudriet's Parade:

Like the remembrances of a vacant town, the poems in Daniel Coudriet’s Parade echo and scratch, fill rooms, floodlike, and rush against the worn paths of past populaces. Their lines trip into each other in the act of sense-making, weary and wistful; their stanzas shutter and develop detours like new symptoms of a melancholy. Each piece gives itself over to its own ghosts — townspeople raising hopeless ruckuses, lost children, passengers of caravans, cold railways, and rivers. Who are these processions? Where is their nation? And is this our best possibility of understanding it — with these fever dreams and distortions? Coudriet holds them his hands, his sustenance, with one promise: “You’d hear hunger.”

Thanks, and we'll have Blue Hour Press news to share in the New Year.

G.C. Waldrep, Szent László Hotel

G.C. Waldrep, Szent László Hotel
60 pages; hand-stitched binding; printed in a numbered edition of 120 in Chicago and Houston in August 2010 / December 2011.
4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inches; $7 (shipping included)

Had my moderation in prosperity been equal to my noble birth and fortune, I should have entered this city as your friend rather than as your captive; and you would not have disdained to receive, under a treaty of peace, a king descended from illustrious ancestors and ruling many nations. My present lot is as glorious to you as it is degrading to myself. I had men and horses, arms and wealth. What wonder if I parted with them reluctantly? If you Romans choose to lord it over the world, does it follow that the world is to accept slavery? Were I to have been at once delivered up as a prisoner, neither my fall nor your triumph would have become famous. My punishment would be followed by oblivion, whereas, if you save my life, I shall be an everlasting memorial of your clemency. — Caractacus

Much like the weather last winter when we heard simultaneously things never heard before at the same time--shouts of "mussels," "shrimp," and "watercress"--so that someone who was attentive to a particular shout at one moment would think it was winter, then spring, and then midsummer, while anyone who heard them all would think that nature had become confused and that the world would not last until Easter. — Søren Kierkegaard

Ruining the New Road by William Matthews is Now Available!

Ruining the New Road 
ISBN : 978-0-9841928-5-4 
$14.00 + s/h
The debut collection by the legendary William Matthews, in its entirety for the first time since 1970.
Careening between the bleak and utterly buoyant, the poems in Ruining the New Road offer a startling open-mouthed, and openhearted honesty that is rare and exhilarating. Fierce in its recognition of both beauty and the painful, yet tender truths of the universe, these poems remind us that Matthews is a genuine master at laying bare the complicated spectrum of the human condition. Here is a book where, as Matthews says, "Everywhere life is ludicrous/ but absolutely crucial."  
- Ada Limón
For a first book of poems to be honest is rare enough: for one to concern itself with honesty, with the evasion of fancy and the lives of our excitements is even more so, and I feel thankful for this book. These narrowed poems, almost epigrammatic, but ultimately meditative, reflect the sorts of confrontation, such as with mirrors, that will matter in the end. 
- John Hollander
"William Matthews writes of the post-Wasteland world, familiar to many young people today but not always to their elders. Like all worlds, it is a state of consciousness, but with a difference. Work and love take the place of extremes of hope and despair; emotion and thought devoted to life as lived in the present take the place of blind worship of the past and blind fear of the future. If work and love can balance the ecology of our planet (both geographic and poetic), William Matthews will deserve our thanks. Like Gary Snyder and Wendell Berry, he knows that the poetry is in the ecology. Matthews, as I believe we shall soon see, is a man of their stature. I believe that he is the best young poet in American." 
-Stephen Mooney, Editor, Tennessee Poetry Journal
